Methoxetamine

Methoxetamine (meth-ox-et-a-meen) also known as MXE, Mexxy, Special K, MKET appeared on the legal high market in 2010 and increased in popularity in 2011. Originally branded a ‘legal high’ it is now illegal to possess and/or supply it. 

Methoxetamine is a dissociative drug similar to ketamine which can make you feel detached from your surroundings. It also increases your heart rate and breathing. People using it can experience a high, positive mood and hallucinations as well as disorientation, loss of coordination and anxiety. 

It comes in a white/off white crystal type powder and is usually snorted or swallowed in a cigarette paper (bombed) or in a pellet. It is more potent than ketamine and longer lasting.  An average dose for snorting will give around 50 lines from a gram and for swallowing around 25 bombs from a gram.  These doses should not be taken as recommendations.

Snorting often causes effects to come on quicker than swallowing and it can be a more intense experience although effects tend to last longer when the drug is swallowed.
